Gal Gadot Was “Shocked” At The Way Joss Whedon Spoke To Her
Gal Gadot says she was “shocked” by the director Joss Whedon spoke to her on the set of 2017’s Justice League.
Whedon has been accused of various workplace abuses during the production of Justice League.
Ray Fisher, who portrays DC superhero Cyborg, said on Twitter that Whedon’s treatment of cast and crew was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable”.
He labelled DC executive Walter Hamada an “enabler” and sworn off any projects associated with him.
The abuses alleged by Fisher appear to have been substantiated by his Justice League co-stars, with Gadot backing up claims that she had been verbally abused on set.
Previously, Gadot told Israeli TV that Whedon had threatened her and said he would make her career miserable.
Speaking with Elle magazine, Gadot briefly touched on her experience working with the controversial director.
“Oh, I was shaking trees as soon as it happened,” she said, explaining her reaction to Whedon’s threats. “And I must say that the heads of Warner Brothers, they took care of it… Going back to the sense of righteousness that I have… you’re dizzy because you can’t believe this was just said to you.”
“And if he says it to me, then obviously he says it to many other people.”
“I just did what I felt like I had to do. And it was to tell people that it’s not okay,” she went on, “I would’ve done the same thing, I think, if I was a man. Would he tell me what he told me had I been a man? I don’t know. We’ll never know.”
“But my sense of justice is very strong. I was shocked by the way he spoke to me. But whatever, it’s done. Water under the bridge.”
